While figuration dominates this particular moment in art, our exhibition explores one alluring aspect of figuration: transfiguration, the transformation of faces, bodies and identities. Through transfiguration we will explore the un-real real, and, to paraphrase the notorious internet artist group etoy. CORPORATION (est.1994), "Leave Reality Behind."

Participating artists range in age from their mid-twenties to ninety years old. Artworks in the show date from the 1990s to yesterday. The works include avatars, digital constructs, puppets, paintings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, videos, and NFTs. As Postmasters has always done since its founding, every visual medium and format shares the gallery walls on equal terms.
